A new milestone for Runes of Magic

A new milestone for Runes of Magic

Berlin - 13th August 2010: Frogster today announced that its online role play game Runes of Magic has now over 4 million registered users worldwide. In over two years, the Berlin based publisher has reached another significant milestone in the history of its multi-award-winning MMORPG. Frogster will celebrate this new historical step for Runes of Magic with its community in Cologne during the Gamescom, from the 19th to the 22nd of August, by setting up contests and demonstrations on their public booth C020/B021 in hall 9.1.

“Frogster can be grateful to its huge community of players for achieving such impressive figures”, comments Andreas Weidenhaupt, Chief Licensing Officer of Frogster Interactive Pictures AG and CEO of Frogster Online Gaming GmbH. “We would like to thank them for their continued support and let them know that we will continue to work hard expanding the world of Runes of Magic to offer them maximum fun” 

To celebrate the day, Frogster has a long list of activities and presentations for players to share this great moment together in Cologne. Between presentations of the newest features to be added to Runes of Magic, players will be able to enjoy demonstrations made by Delirium one of the world leading guilds who will demonstrate on how to clear the instance of the Demon Stronghold, the lair of the almighty Demon Lord Sirloth.

This very same guild will have to use all its know-how during speed-run confrontations with the guild Pravum from the German server Riocht. The goals of these competitions will be to clear a particular instance as fast as possible. It makes no doubt that all the Runes of Magic fans playing on these servers will be cheering behind their representatives.
